Where did you watch this movie?

The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO mini-figure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously under-prepared. Chris Pratt stars as the voice of Emmet. Will Ferrell stars as the voice of his primary adversary, president business, an erudite, anal-retentive CEO who has a hard time balancing world domination with micro-managing his own life; while Liam Neeson voices the president’s powerful henchman, known as bad cop, who will stop at nothing to catch Emmet. Starring as Emmet’s fellow travelers are Oscar winner Morgan Freeman, as Vitruvius, an old mystic; Elizabeth Banks, as tough-as-nails Lucy, who mistakes Emmet for the savior of the world and guides him on his quest; Will Arnett, as the mysterious Batman, a lego minifigure with whom Lucy shares a history; Nick Offerman as a craggy, swaggering pirate obsessed with revenge on president business; and Alison Brie as a sweet, loveable member of the team, with a powerful secret.

Assembling in 2014
WyldStyle and Uni-Kitty are seen falling out of a spaceship with space clothes on, and upon their landing are cornered. The next time they are seen they are still cornered, only wearing their normal clothes.

When Emmet goes to buy overpriced coffee, Larry the Barista says "That's 37 bucks." In the background, you can see a woman in a Fabuland T-shirt is right next to the window. When Emmet replies "Awesome!" she has moved a (Lego) metre forward and someone is opposite her.

After the glue cap gets removed from Emmet's back there is still glue residue on his back. But towards the end of the film, the glue residue seems to have vanished.

In the real world, the dad seems to take apart a whole bunch of the son's creations and put them back to the way they were before. But in later shots, none of the son's creations seem to have changed.
The toymaker has a worldwide appeal and reach, just having celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2008, and as of last year had produced 560 billion Lego parts and 4 billion mini-figures. There are now six Legoland theme parks, and Lego characters have appeared in approximately 50 videogames.

The song “Everything Is Awesome,” a collaboration between film composer Mark Mothersbaugh, Tegan & Sara, and comedy group the Lonely Island, has broken out as a catchy hit.

Warner Brothers turned to domestic Lego User Groups (called LUGs) to build Lego displays in theaters as a way to build buzz across social media outlets. Along with key actors appearing in late-night TV shows to promote the movie, the positive reviews were also beneficial to its phenomenal success.

Every character in this unique animation movie was designed in such a way that it appears that they’re built from the Lego pieces.

For the Japanese dub of the movie, a mere eight voice actors have been hired to voice all 150 characters! Also the movie was dubbed in Spanish for Latin American viewers.

The attention to detail in this movie is really incredible, right down to the animation process which is a combination of stop-motion and CGI.

Elizabeth Banks and Liam Neeson were almost not present amongst the cast members for this movie, because Emma Stone and Robert Downey Jr. were originally up for the roles of Wyldstyle and Bad Cop.

Original Star Wars movie stars Billy Dee Williams and Anthony Daniels, both reprised their roles as Lando Calrissian and C-3PO, respectively, in this movie, creating a buzz amongst Star Wars fans.

Before voicing LEGO Lincoln, Forte has been the voice of Lincoln in the animated series 'Clone High'.

This movie marks the big screen debut of The Flash, and this unique super hero might be back on the big screen in his own feature in the near future

Benny, a minifig from the classic LEGO space line, is intentionally batter and broken, just like it would be after years of having children play with it, even down to the cracked helmet, a common 'injury' the minifig suffered.

This movie quickly became a game changer in the genre of animated movies, creating a tsunami at the box office. It was credited as being Walt Disney Animation’s biggest hit since 1994’s 'The Lion King' (when adjusting for inflation). 'The LEGO Movie', also set a record for a feature animated film from Warner Bros. Pictures, surpassing the $41.5 million debut of 2006’s 'Happy Feet'.

While The LEGO Movie’s graphics were made by using a great deal of CGI, the hit movie also occasionally built its sets using a boatload of actual LEGOs - 3,863,484 LEGOs, to be exact. Had they used real LEGOs they’d have had to use 15,080,330 total bricks and 183 different minifigs just to pull it off. Production designers used free software LEGO Digital Designer (and a lot of patience) to add in those 12 million additional bricks.

Everything in the movie was designed to look as if built out of LEGO pieces. This even includes effects like water, fire, laser bolts, explosions and smoke. For instance, the lasers are actually transparent LEGO rods (commonly known as "Lightsaber blades"), while smaller puffs of smoke are LEGO ice cream pieces. This is in contrast with the direct-to-video LEGO movies and cartoon series, in which parts of the sceneries and most of the effects were made to look realistic.

Lord Business is president of Octan, a fictional gas station brand that first appeared in 1992 and has since been featured in numerous Lego sets.

Emmet drives a modified 3177 Small Car, an actual set from LEGO City's 2010 lineup. The differences from the set are the curved front bumper and its side-mirrors.

This is the fourth film for Morgan Freeman, and the third film for Liam Neeson, which features Batman, albeit, with different variations.

When the logo is being built, a cat can be seen in the first few seconds standing on a few lego blocks.

In the film, Will Forte voices Abraham Lincoln in a cameo role. This marks his second time portraying Lincoln since the short-lived animated sitcom 'Clone High' (2002), Phil Lord and Christopher Miller's early TV work.

Vitruvius was a Roman author and architect in the 1st century BC, best known for his multi-volume work entitled De Architectura. Etymologically, the word architect derives from Greek words meaning 'master' and 'builder'.

The movie showed a couple of references to Fabuland, most notably on the shirts of a couple of Minifigures (possibly alluding to "throwback" shirts). Fabuland was Lego's "transition" storybook line that existed from 1979 to 1989.

Pièce de résistance is a French term (circa 1839), translated into English literally as "piece of (or for) resistance," referring to the best part or feature of something (as in a meal), a showpiece, or highlight.

LEGO rolled out 17 new sets that tie in with this film.
